It poured an orange color with a off-white head. The aroma was wheat, fruit and some coriander. The flavor was coriander, and the aromas above. It was an ok beer. jcwattsrugger (12433) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - JUN 29, 2011

I really liked this one. Thinner pour with a clear gold body and a bubbly smalle white head. Aroma of orange citrus, spicey, grassy wheat, yeast and juice. Flavor of honey, orange, slight earth, vanilla and dry grains. Solid but judging how off my rating is I may possibly have had to much. jtclockwork (16685) - , New Jersey, USA - APR 23, 2011

22oz bottle from birchstick.
Pours very hazy, bright yellow with a fizzy white head that evaporates immediately and leaves no lacing to speak of.
The aroma is heavy on the coriander and orange peel, really heavy, with very little of the underlying wheat beer that I could tell. Maybe a touch of sweetness in the back but the coriander really stands out.
The taste is much sweeter than the aroma with the wheat and orange peel sitting heavily on the palate up front. The spices hit in the finish and leave a dry finish.
The mouthfeel is medium bodied with lower carbonation than I was expecting. A little watery in the finish.
This is probably just an average witbier and not one that I would revisit.

02-Dec-09 (22-oz bottle: Purchased 08-Sep-09 for $3.99 at www.wineandcheeseplace.com) This is a fairly lemony and tart witbier, rather heavy on the citrus peel and coriander compared to the light wheat base. Orange peel, dried apricot and coriander are prominent in the nose, with some light wheat aroma lagging in the background. For this style, the weight shouldn’t be too heavy, so the refreshing, light-bodied entry is reasonably on-target, but the beer finishes very watery. It’s quite dry on the palate, but also light-medium in carbonation and on the acidic side too, though the increased acidity helps to offset the lighter than expected carbonation. Hazy yellow body with a quarter-inch of fizzy, white head that fully dissipates within a minute. Overall, it’s simple and direct, not one of the better examples of the style and not all that enjoyable to drink. topherh (1929) - Kearney, Missouri, USA - NOV 17, 2010

Bottle from a trade with phaleslu. Pours cloudy pale brownish orange color with thin white head. Aromas of corriander and orange peel. Sweet orange flavor with some wheat and corriander. Light to medium body with a crisp mouthfeel. Thanks Peter. phaleslu (10325) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 8, 2010
4 oz. draft at The Bridge. Pours a hazy yellow-gold with a small white head that sticks to the beer, not the glass. Aroma is light, but pleasant- notes of coriander, citrus, wheat, and pale malts. Flavor is just a bit better, with mild citrus, coriander, wheat, pale malts, honey, and floral hops. Light-bodied, with crisp carbonation and a light wheat mouthfeel. Crisp and refreshing. theisti (4138) - Kansas, USA - SEP 28, 2010
22 oz bottle purchased at The Wine and Cheese Place in St Louis, Missouri. Pour is a hazed slightly dark golden with some settling building up a 1/2 inch white head. Head falls quickly. Aroma is a soft and fresh peach fruit sweetness. Clean, though not terribly complex. The taste follows, clean peach fruit, with a touch of malt and wheat and a benign clean finish. Way in the back I pick up some grassy coriander. Palate is medium bodied, slick, and low carbonation. The sweetness lingers pleasantly in the aftertaste. Not really a typical Wit, in my opinion, but still fresh and enjoyable.
